Neighbourhood Scoreboards

— The project investigates the effect of public exposure of domestic energy usage on house facades. From October to November 2010 five chalkboards as feedback displays were installed in a Sydney neighbourhood and manually updated each day. The visualisation included the change of electricity consumption compared to the previous day, a symbolic representation for each day of the current month, a graph representation for each week, and a daily neighbourhood ranking. Project team: Andrew Vande Moere, Martin Tomitsch, Monika Hoinkis, Elmar Trefz, Silje Johansen, Allison Jones, and more. Published at the 2011 INTERACT conference.
